Found out my library is going to start offering this streaming service soon:

https://www.kanopy.com/about-us/libraries

Kanopy has a smallish library but a lot of classic and independent movies. Lots of instructional/educational videos too apparently.

Saw Bohemian Rhapsody. It was every bit as good as I had hoped. I was pretty overwhelmed by the reminder of just what he meant to the gay community and for the attention AIDS was needing at the time. A true legend and hero to many.

Late to the party, but last night I watched Michael Clayton on Amazon Prime. It's very good thriller that features peak Clooney.

Following up on Michael's lateness, I saw "The People vs. Larry Flynt" recently. Woody Harrelson was great; Courtney Love wasn't horrible; I learned Brett Harrelson is Woody's much-less talented brother; I forgot that James Carville tried his hand at acting; and Edward Norton was pretty good.

Oh, and there were boobs, for those who care about that.

Yeah, I liked the small role Norm (McDonald) had, simply because you get to hear Norm's funny voice.

Ballad of Buster Scruggs -I could watch a 199 more chapters of it.

favorite, least favorite episodes?
[SHOW]
Hard to pick a fave, but that first one (Buster Scruggs) probably.
Least, maybe the one with James Franco at the gallows
The last one "The Mortal Remains"
[SHOW]
Was getting sleepy when watching, so I was initially confused by ending.
After sleeping on it, the two guys were grim reapers of a sort - and over the course of the ride they reveal enough that the other passengers are realizing this. As the one said, the stagecoach driver will not stop. There is no checking out of that hotel. Also, that stagecoach driver image, creepy and iconic.
[SHOW]
visually - the classic western film views are just spectacular..... They didn't need any stories, I could have just watched that Wagon train rolling along, or the Native Americans riding over the hill, or the gold miner ambling along with his horse
Anyway, good [expletive] from the Coen Brothers.
